Employees making a difference

Every day, around the globe, our #BofAVolunteers are helping improve communities, whether mentoring youth, advancing better money habits for individuals or building affordable housing for working families.

Our employees donate generously to causes that they care about, from disaster relief to education and other community needs. Each year, our employees volunteer nearly 2 million hours to strengthen communities and provide generous financial donations to more than 40,000 nonprofits around the world.

Annually, their giving directs more than $65 million in total to communities via individual giving and the bank’s matching gifts program.

More support for giving back

To further unite our company behind the concept of giving back, we celebrate our passion every April during “Global Service Month.” During that time, we plan special volunteer activities and recognize all of the spectacular work our team does during the year.

Other ways we encourage employees:

  • Paid time off to volunteer
  • Grants up to $1,000 for organizations where employees volunteer
  • Celebrate employees who make a difference with company-wide honor rolls and our annual Global Volunteer Awards
  • President’s Volunteer Service Award recognizing U.S. employees who log at least 200 volunteer hours annually

Habitat for Humanity®

Stable, affordable housing is the backbone of strong communities, which is why our 30+ year partnership with Habitat for Humanity® is so meaningful to us. Every year, Bank of America employees volunteer around 35,000 hours with Habitat. Recently, volunteers from our Global Technology & Operations helped Habitat’s Charlotte chapter, partnering with Apparo (a nonprofit that assists other nonprofits with technology) to update hardware, improve efficiency and make their technology more secure.
